THE STORY OF THE PLAY
Jen returns to her small, North Carolina hometown to plan her wedding and convince her dear family friend Della to bake the wedding cake. But when the devout Della learns that there will be two brides and no groom, she politely declines. Both women struggle with their consciences, as they try to balance family and faith, and hope that they can have their cake and eat it too.
Della: 45-65, pleasant and round, a proud Southerner.
Tim: 45-65, a good ol’ boy. Della’s husband.
Jen: 25-40, a Southern transplant to New York, optimistic.
Macy: 25-40, Jen’s reluctant fiancé, African American
The Cake begins rehearsals Monday, March 18, 2019, and runs at the Pam Miller Downtown Arts Center April 12-28, 2019.
